Africa - Days ten, eleven, twelve and thirteen

Four days in Kruger National Park have us up early in the morning for a game drive, the best time to find the largest variety of wildlife.  A full day game drive.  Another day of bird and game watching and walks in the park, and an evening game drive to catch sight of some nocturnal animals.  Kruger is known for viewing wildlife at it's best, so I am keeping my fingers crossed  hoping that I see some of the Big Five, plus other wildlife in the Park. 
A visit to Blyde River Canyon to see God's Window and Bourke's Luck Potholes and later that evening a dinner of native dishes.

As this trip is for the older generation (of which I am one, maybe not in heart, but getting there in years)  we are being treated to the best of two world,  luxury and rough and rugged.. Luxury hotels for a comfortable sleep at night, nice hot showers, balconies overlooking some beautiful scenery and great food. Swimming pools and dips in the ocean.   Rough and rugged during the day, safari's in open vehicles, walking though the bush and grasslands.  Climbing in boats for rides on the rivers and to see seals and penguins, and over rocks and in caves.  Riding an ostrich and  a cable car and visiting vineyards.

Also on the itinerary is what is described as leisure time, hopefully while in Cape Town I might be tempted to search out a fabric shop of some kind. 

Have a great day

Oh, I like the sound of the luxury, didn't have too much of that on my trip.

Oh, I can't wait to see your photos, especially in the Kruger. When I went there many years ago I saw a leopard walking down the road and an African Wild Dog! And the birds!!!!!!!!!!!
